facebook LOGOAccording to a recent Pew Research Center study, 11% of U.S. adults still don't use the Internet. That's a significant change from 48% in 2000, but the study revealed that age remains a major factor, with 34% of senior citizens remaining offline. Nonetheless, seniors are more connected than ever. Eighty-six percent of seniors were offline in 2000, but easier-to-use apps and sites — particularly Facebook— brought them online. Pew recently reported that 55% of Americans over the age of 50 use Facebook. If you don’t use Facebook, why not get started and see what you are missing?

NOTE: The center is closed when the Washington County Nutrition Program and the local schools are closed because of inclement weather. Listen to your local radio or television stations for school closings.

Reminder: ALL seniors are invited to participate in, and attend program and activity meetings, and fundraising meetings.
